sides, he claimed that the music was
not for the supreme court, but for Judge
Cooper to hear, in order to settle tho
question of fact. After due considera
tion Judge Cooper admitted the per
formance in evidence. The instru
ments were tuned, and, at the word of
command, the five gongs, two cymbals,
big bass drum and several other effec
tive, but indescribable instruments,
went off. Such music had never before
been heard in the court-room. It rat
tled and screamed and bellowed and
thundered around the room and tried to
burst the windows. The full bench of
the supreme court, sitting in another
room, promptly adjourned and hurried
in. The meeting of the board of health
in the room below came to a dead stand
still, and the audience, including tho
cabinet, rushed out in bewilderment.
Mr. Marsden, in the agricultural depart

and tried to get out of the window; but
immediately recovered himself and ex
claimed that he had now found a new
remedy for the Japanese beetle. The
portraits of the eminent justices, now
departed, which adorn the walls of tho
court-room, were disturbed, and pre

the noise to abate and the trial proceeded.
STUDY OF THE MOON.
Peculiarities .Vti in Ii p p.- r.i n a t
IM'Ti rent S.-isons.
To the casual oa-.-rv. r the motions
of tiie moou appear to ho exce edingly
v.hi:n.-i.-al and irregular, says the St.
i.o.us Republic. If its p'a-e in tie sky
is : hod it will bo found that it is
first ::or;h and tm.ii south of tho sun's
path, and that it is sometimes east and
sometimes west, of that luminary. The
last two motions are steady and regular
from east to west, carrying the moon in
its endless swing around th heavens,
starting at new moon near the sun and
progressing until at full moon the
whole visible portion of the sky separ
ates the two bodies. After this there
are two weeks in which the moon still
appears to move backward, approach
ing the sun from the other side, then,
again apparently all of a sudden, it
passes the sun and we behold a "new
moon." The north and south motions
of the moon are entirely different.
While performing its endless journey
from west to east there are two spe
cial periods in which it cither moves
far northward or takes up its position
low down in the south. In spring the
first motion is north, but afterward the
general motion is reversed. In De
cember you will note that the full moon
occurs at the most northerly point in
her course and in June at the most
southerly. This is why we have most
light from the full moon of winter and
least from that of summer. Observa
tions on these various movements in
dicate to us the path in which the moon
moves about the earth and also show
its that that body in different parts of
its orbit is at varying distances from
the earth. To is indicates t ha t the moon's
path is not a circle, hut an e'lipse, hav
ing the earth in one of its foci. The
roonn beiuir governed directly and held
in position by the attraction of the
earth, he! Is its primary movements in
a path around our globe, but the at
traction energy of the sun and of the
giant planets, perhaps, in a lesser de
gree, produces motions in the moon
which may be summarized briefly as a
combination of the six following move
ments. (1) Its resolution about the
earth. C2) its revolution with the earth
about the sun, CI) the vibrating eccen
tricity of its orbit, h the slow, direct
rotation in the "line of apsides." ("O the
retrograde rotation in the line of nodes
and ( is rotation on its axis. It would
be proper to enlarge this "note" so as
to give a full explanation of the causes
of each of the above-mentioned move
ments, but as each would require the
use of scoies of diagrams and technical
phrases such a feat cannot be attempted.

KilU a Down K;nt Pulpit.
The town of Littleton. N. H.. has a
woman pastor, Mrs. Frost. She first
came to town as the wife of the pastor
01 tiie Congregational church, Rev.
George H. Frost. Owing to ill health
he was obliged to go abroad, and the
church invited Mrs. Frost to supply the
pulpit during his absence. This she did
for a year, when an ecclesiastical coun
cil was called, and, after a most rigid
pyamination the rite of ordination was
I administered and Mrs. Frost was then
! fitted legally for all the functions of a
minister. In pulpit, parish, at funerals,
marriage ceremonies and all other ser-
i vices she was equally acceptable. Those
j who were at first doubtful of the ex
I pediency of the step have all been qtiiet
i ly convinced of the wisdom of the plan,
and, when the pastor was forced, from
continued il'. health, to ask a dismis
sion, it was granted only on condition
that Mrs. Frost should be Installed and
be the pastor. Each advance step lead
ing to this remarkable arrangement has
been taken by the people. In no in
stance has Mrs. Frost put herself for
ward. She is a modest, retiring woman
of marked ability.
